Birmingham Open – 18/19 th January.
Mike Strange reports
Sadly as so often happens the Field events at Birmingham were overlooked in my report of 20 Jan. To make amends please include this item within your reading of that report.
Emma BAKARE U23 our formidable Triple Jumper bounced back this week after a disappointing performance last week at Loughborough to record a fine 11.21m jump. An excellent all round Athlete who specialises in Triple Jump Emma will be well pleased with this improvement as she settles into her new lifestyle at University.
Higher Competition Member Jake BURKEY U23 was also forgotten. Paul WESTON coached Jake who is normally a 7m + jumper cleared 6.84m to take 3 rd place in the competition in his first competitive jump of the new year. Jake also sprinted and in his two 60m runs recorded 7.62 & 7.65 secs.
As another addition Otis MONDIR has messaged to say that he was disqualified in that 800m for a lane infringement. Tough Otis, it is sadly something so easily done on an indoor track.
